Moderate to breezy trade winds are forecast to spread through the entire island chain by Saturday and continue through most of the work week. That means we will be back to mainly windward and mauka showers in the morning and overnight hours.
Today & Sunday
We expect northeast winds from 10 to 20 mph and increasing to 15 to 25 mph on Sunday. Partly to mostly cloudy for windward and mauka spots with scattered showers during the day. Leeward spots should see isolated showers with lots of sunshine. The volcanic haze is all but gone as winds have swept the islands clean. Temperatures up to 85° to 90°.
UV index at 11 (“extreme” exposure level)
Tonight & Sunday Night
Partly to mostly cloudy skies with showers likely for windward spots and just isolated showers for leeward areas. Low temperatures from 72° to 77°. Winds are expected to be trade winds around 10 to 20 mph and increasing on Sunday.
